History: our 50th birthday celebration

In September, 2019, the whole company came together at head office in Ramsbottom to celebrate 50 years of Booth King. All the offices were closed while we spent the day on the East Lancashire Heritage Railway reconnecting with our colleagues from the different offices as we travelled up and down the Irwell Valley in the surprising September sunshine.

Established in 1969 as Alan Booth Associates, the practice developed into Booth King Partnership and incorporated in 2007. Our aims remain the same as the ones that established the practice 50 years ago – to provide the highest quality of engineering design in concept, in detail design and in execution, on programme and delivering excellent value for money.

A great day was had by all and we were delighted to be joined by members of Mike King’s family to celebrate 50 years of engineering innovation and success.

History: our co-founders

Circa 1965, Alan Booth founded Alan S Booth and Associates, Consulting Structural and Civil Engineers, based in Prince’s Chambers, John Dalton Street, Manchester.

The business moved to 1 Mason Street, Ancoats, Manchester in 1976.

Booth King Partnership was founded in 1986 when Alan went into partnership with Michael King. The business moved its base to Rawtenstall in the early 90s.

Alan retired around 1996 and the partnership has since changed hands but is still trading with the name Booth King Partnership Limited.
